DIY School Supply “Cake” (Back to School Gift Idea)
No eating this cake!
Are you looking for a creative way to donate school supplies to a deserving teacher and/or school? Check out this fun and easy-to-make tiered “cake” using school supplies!
The best part is you can use the supplies you have on hand as I did in my example, or you can use whatever you find on sale, or already have in your stockpile. What a great way to take advantage of all the amazing back to school deals we’ve been sharing here on Hip2Save!
School’s looking a little different this year…
I know what you’re thinking — “Is there even going to be a ‘traditional’ school year?” We know that teachers already invest so much into creating the perfect classroom for their students. So whether these supplies are able to be used at the start of the school year or will eagerly await students when things start to normalize, this gift is so thoughtful either way!

Paint the boxes if desired and let dry.
Repeat the same steps with the top box. It took me 49 Colorful Sharpie Markers to cover the top box, but you could also use highlighters, #2 pencils, dry erase markers, or any other school supply, really! Note: I decided not to use the lid for the top tier so it could hold the wipes and hand sanitizer inside instead.
Lastly, cover the rubber bands with decorative tape or ribbon.
This gift is just way too cute!
School supplies are appreciated by all teachers and this is such a fun and festive way to present all the goodies! I hope you’ll give it a shot, too. It’s sure to be appreciated by your child’s teacher, whether they’re in the classroom or not!
